1 1/2cupsfreshly ground sourdough breadcrumbsmade by pulsing sourdough sandwich bread in a mini food processor
1cupshaved parmesan cheese
3/4cupdried cranberries (without sulfites)
3/4cuproasted salted pepitas
juice of 1 lemon
generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
Add the thinly sliced kale to a large salad bowl and set aside.
Next, add the butter to a small nonstick skillet and warm over medium heat until melted. Add the fresh breadcrumbs, and cook, stirring frequently with a spatula, until the breadcrumbs are nice and golden brown and starting to crisp up. When fully golden and crisp, turn off the heat and stir in the garlic powder and salt. Then remove from the pan to a large plate to cool in one flat layer.
While the breadcrumbs cool, add the cheese, cranberries, and pepitas to the kale. Pour the juice of 1 lemon over the top, and drizzle the salad liberally with extra virgin olive oil. Toss well to combine.
When the breadcrumbs are cooled, sprinkle them over the salad and toss again to combine. Serve right away.
